plugin help

Hi, I’m writing a “hello world” plugin to search You input a last name in the search query and it will either return a list of basketball players w/ that last name, or the player’s main page if only one is found. Here’s the XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">
	<string>About HOF Monitor scores</string>

However, this is not working like I think it should, and I don’t know why.

If I input a search term that only gives one result (like “Drexler”), DA displays items in the Pages tab with “teams” in the URL–why?

Here’s an example of a “main” player page:

Thanks in advance.

What version of DEVONagent are you using? On the latest version (2.0.2) this works like you’d expect. When searching for Drexler, I get 7 documents. In the Digest I see a nice diagram when I click on the “Drexler” topic, in the Pages I see no “teams” in the URLs and in the Log I see that it initially got 41 links.

I’m using 2.0.2. I also get 7 documents: … 031&tm=hou … 103&tm=hou … =DREXLCL01 … =DrexlCl01 … 103&tm=hou … 101&tm=hou … =DREXLCL01

Are these the 7 you get as well? You can see 4 of the 7 have “teams” in the URL…


This is my list of results (now there are 8), as you can see there are no links with “teams” in them. And I just copied your plist description and stuck it in the app’s Plugins folder.

Ahh, I figured it out–it was in the ‘settings’ pane–‘follow links’ was on. I guess I assumed DA would use my LinksNotMatching criteria, but it seems that stuff is disregarded after the initial search engine results.

Thanks for your help!
